Snowplow Drivers in Western States in Short Supply This Year
Recommendations Made to Increase Numbers and Improve Public Safety
(Washington, DC) A national transportation group is warning that Americans across the country will likely face long delays this winter as states struggle to find enough snowplow drivers.
“State transportation officials have repeatedly told us they simply can’t fill many driver positions. In fact, one official recently said he needs 140 new snowplow drivers but due to low wages and other concerns he is having trouble hiring anyone,” said Doug Anderson, the Utah-based incoming chairman of the National Coalition for Open Roads (NCFOR).
